Today we celebrated another birthday in our house as my youngest turned eight.  This is an incredibly busy time of year for us with all the robotics tournaments, Christmas activities, etc, but we did manage to make today a little extra special.

Here gift this year was a big one.  Much more that we usually do, but I just couldn’t wait until Christmas to give her the American Girl doll her big sister and I purchased for her when we were in New York last March.  The doll was a big hit and we are glad to have “Bell” join our family.
